She Walks Crooked - Pink Foot Bandage Volume 2 [Ominous Records - 2017]

Here we have the follow-up to last Octobers excellent Pink Foot Bandage Volume 1 - and it’s another distinctive & subtle shifting blend of walled noise & drone matter from this California based project. As with the first vol, this release appeared on Stockholm based Ominous Records- and it came out in December of 2017- either in the form of a tape( sadly sold-out) or a digital download.

Each side of tape takes in a single track, and each of these come in around the fifteen-minute mark. "Part I" opens with a dense-yet- slightly blurred blend of rushing bass rumble, chalky scape & rattle, and building drone like tunneling. By around the third minute the dense ‘wall’ elements have really petered back, and we're left with a very slow residing drone wash- which is akin to walking through a tunnel as a nearby road & wind storm rage outside- instead of kicking  straight back in with  force- the  next three minutes the whole thing gets slow-but-surely carved  out. Then at just passed the six minute a loose & awkwardly bounding mesh tunneling drone & crustily agitated jitter comes into play- and this works as a great contrast to the carving out of the past elements, that are seemingly getting more faint & ill-defined.

Flipping the tape over & we, of course, have "Part II"- this pretty much feeds directly from the end of the first track- with a blend of distant & slightly churning bass muffle, & a building mesh of rattling &  windshield like swishing static. With this track sees the project perfect  the feeling of blurring drone & walls in a masterful way- so as a result you get this feeling of prolonged numbing, which really is most addictive- so I was a little disappointed when the tracks ‘wall’  elements do fade out.

It’s a real, real pity this has sold out in tape form as both sides are great half-way-houses between drone  & walls. Here’s hoping they’ll be a reissue of both Volumes of Pink Foot Bandage
